NSF REU Summer Fellow Opportunity

7 weeks during June to August, 2016

The NSF Spatiotemporal Innovation Center (STC) is looking for six undergraduate research assistants to serve as NSF REU Summer Fellows in 2016. Two students will work at George Mason University Site (Fairfax, VA), two at Harvard University site (Cambridge, MA) and two at University of California, Santa Barbara site (Santa Barbara, CA).
This opportunity is supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) I/UCRC and Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Programs which enable undergraduate students to obtain research experience and consider a career path in spatiotemporal domains (e.g., GIS, CS, Geosciences, etc.). NSF REU Student interns will work in a team with graduate students, postdocs, and faculty at one of the three center sites and will conduct research related to spatiotemporal issues. NSF fellows also have the opportunity to attend a professional conference to present their research results. Students may participate in various projects.
